Bacon, Cheese & Egg Biscuit Cups

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

I’ve had the idea for these cups floating around in my head for a long time. I’ve always loved appetizer-type dishes made with canned crescent rolls or biscuits. However, I wanted to be able to make similar dishes with a made-from-scratch dough. So I finally tackled that project this weekend and I am so happy with the way they turned out.

This recipe makes 2 dozen, so there are plenty to stick in the freezer to enjoy later. We reheated a frozen batch for lunch today and they turned out wonderfully! These are definitely versatile enough for breakfast or lunch.

Bacon, Cheese & Egg Biscuit Cups
For Biscuit Dough:

  • 2 1/2 c. flour
  • 2 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1/2 c. butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten

1. In a large bowl, whisk or sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in milk and egg until dough comes together. Knead a few times by hand and set aside.

For Filling:

  • 6 eggs
  • 3 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
  • To taste: hot sauce, garlic powder, salt, pepper…or any other seasonings you’d like to add

1. Whisk eggs in a large bowl. Stir in cream cheese and milk until smooth. Add other ingredients and stir to combine.

To assemble:

1. Using about 2 T. of biscuit dough at a time, press into the bottom, and 3/4 of the way up the sides, of lightly greased muffin tins. Pre-bake at 400 degrees for 3 minutes.
2. Pour 1/4 c. egg mixture into each pre-baked biscuit cup and bake for 12-15 minutes longer, until eggs are completely set and biscuit cups are slightly browned.
